Property Information | Winchester, SO22

A well proportioned and extended detached house beautifully refurbished to exacting standards.

The Property:
This spacious detached house has been completely renovated throughout and provides exceptionally well-presented accommodation over its two floors. An oversized front door is flanked by glazed slips and opens into a welcoming entrance hall which is fitted with a bespoke metal framed staircase with beech treads rising to the first floor. One side of the hallway is a snug with a front aspect window, whilst the other side is a fully fitted home office with two desks, drawers and filing space. The heart of the house is undoubtedly the kitchen/dining/sitting room which is an expansive space providing excellent natural light with three roof lights and sliding doors to the rear aspect with French doors opening onto the deck. The kitchen is fitted to one end with a 'Leicht' German kitchen with dark wooden effect base units and contrasting grey eye level units with sleek grey quartz worktops, appliances include a full height fridge, freezer, dishwasher, two ovens with a warming drawer and a fitted 'Quooker' boiling water tap. There is a walk-in pantry cupboard and an induction hob with extraction system is inset into a large island unit with breakfast counter to one side that neatly delineates the kitchen and with ample space for a large dining table with a large sitting room space. A large separate utility room keeps appliances out of the kitchen and can be accessed from the garage and external door. There is a cloakroom that completes the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor has a large principal bedroom which is dual aspect and fitted with four sets of double 'Sharps' wardrobes and opens into the ensuite which has a shower, WC and basin with vanity unit below. There are two further double bedrooms and a good size single bedroom that are served by a four-piece bathroom with a quadrant shower and separate 'Victoria & Albert' freestanding bath.

Externally the property is approached over a driveway laid to 'Mendip' stones and part enclosed by estate railings and hedging with an electrically operated door opening to the garage. The rear garden has been professionally landscaped to provide a low maintenance outside space with a deck immediately behind the house, with space for a table and chairs, with steps to a lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders.

The Location:
'Foxdown' offers excellent and easy access to the station, city, and countryside alike. Families are drawn to this area of Winchester due to the spacious plots, large floorplans and of course the proximity to both primary and secondary schooling as well as Peter Symonds VI Form College. Excellent shopping facilities exist at Stoney Lane only a short walk away, where there is a Waitrose store as well as smaller retailers including a pharmacy, Friarsgate Doctors Practice and Dean Park which has well-equipped children's play and exercise areas. There are also excellent transport links to London by train or road and Southampton International Airport. The South Coast for sailing and the New Forest for walking and riding are all within an easy drive. A bus stop is situated just a three-minute walk away offering a frequent service to the City Centre. There are also lovely walks along the river Itchen, through The Water Meadows and St. Catherine's Hill.
